Angeleno Gary Baseman has been super busy lately, which is no surprise because he’s such a big artistic voice. He’s been travelling around a lot for various projects and just yesterday we got a note from him previewing his newest show VICIOUS, which is coming April 5 to Milan’s Antonio Colombo Gallery.
We’ve been keeping tabs on Sci-Arc’s Robot House for some time, trying to figure out exactly what the facility is. It seemed for a bit that they didn’t know what it would be for either but–now–it seems like they’ve gotten a little bit of an idea, as they have changed the name to something a little sexier and have the robots painting a little more complex things.
Last night was likely the large diamond at the center of the tiny, tiny, tiny crown that is Los Angeles Fashion Week: Skingraft‘s Fall 2012 Presentation. We’d been getting pumped for the show, so much so that we sat down with head of the brand, Jonny Cota, to get an idea of what to expect. The show was brilliant and on par with what Skingraft is known for creating–and, it was totally unexpected.
A few weeks ago, we asked artists through the Pacific Standard Time Facebook and Twitter pages to share their thoughts with us. To highlight some of Southern California’s up-and-coming talent, we’ve spoken with a few of these artists and asked them about their work, how they draw inspiration from Southern California, and their thoughts on Pacific Standard Time. The sixth artist in the series is Danny Heller, an oil painter who views Southern California through an endearing baby booming eye.
John Talbot is a local bowl maker who turns pieces of trees into beautiful, sometimes incredibly intricate bowls. He treats wood as if it were clay, shaping them so quickly and effortlessly as if they were a soft, hype-malleable material. He sands them and chisels away at them and very often has them spinning at high speeds where he whittles away at them, reshaping the material in an unbelievable way. His process is highlighted in a new video that sees him speaking about his trees, Los Angeles, his work, and how they all interact with each other.
